This fall, students will head back to campus following a year of increased news coverage of sexual violence. More and more, students are looking for ways to end campus sexual violence and spread awareness about resources available to survivors—and they are turning to RAINN for help.Holding coffee cup with RAINN coffee sleeve, National Sexual Assault Hotline phone number

For the second year in a row, RAINN is inviting student organizers, administrators, and community members to order free coffee sleeves that contain information for the National Sexual Assault Hotline.

 

The disposable coffee sleeves fit 12-20 oz cups, for both hot and cold beverages, and are distributed in packs of 1,000. They contain information for the National Sexual Assault Hotline as well as a quote from a survivor who was able to connect with a RAINN support specialist.

Why coffee sleeves?

“On-campus cafes and local coffee shops are often willing to partner with students on important educational events, like increasing awareness of sexual assault resources,” said Nancy Amestoy, RAINN’s national campus liaison.

 

 

 

It isn’t always easy to reach out for help following sexual assault—this can be particularly true on college campuses where students form tight-knit communities. Survivors may fear not being believed, retaliation, or other safety concerns. Presenting the National Sexual Assault Hotline information on a cup of coffee can literally put help in the hands of survivors. 

The coffee sleeves can act as conversation starters and open up important conversations about consent and bystander intervention. RAINN encourages students to share pictures with the coffee sleeves on social media using the hashtag #TalkToRAINN.

 


If you or someone you know has been affected by sexual violence, it’s not your fault. You are not alone. Help is available 24/7 through the National Sexual Assault Hotline: 800.656.HOPE and online.rainn.org, y en español: rainn.org/es.

Seven out of 10 sexual assaults are committed by someone who knows the victim.
